Pace Pallet Services uses plantation pine timber for most of our pallets, crates and skids. This timber is harvested in Government-certified plantations which have controlled regrowth programs for the continued rejuvenation of the pine population. Stronger pallets, crates and skids - for heavier and more bulky items such as metal pipes and building materials - are made from recyclable hardwood...read more
When Bluescope Steel needed a custom crate system to transport 6,000 square metres of steel cladding panels to China they called on Pace Pallet Services. The panels were destined for the $61M Australian Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo and each curved panel was unique. They had to be unloaded in sequence to enable the construction crew to complete the cladding of the monstrous 50-metre high building in just 8 weeks. Pace Pallet Services designed customised treated pine timber crates that were an exact fit for the mixture of curved steel panels. The crates could safely take their weight without being unnecessarily over-constructed. They could be stacked, forklifted, and were designed to make it easy for the construction crew to extract the panels on-site.
“We appreciate the assistance we received from Pace Pallet Services. They designed and manufactured all of our crates under the one roof. Despite the enormity of this project they met all of our deadlines and the project went like clock work. This was a very exciting and dynamic project to be involved in. It was as high a profile as you can get architecturally apart from the Olympic Games”, says Steve Halpin from Bluescope Steel. Referring to how we helped them safely ship 6,000 square metres of steel cladding from Australia to Sydney for a landmark building project. “The main objective was to vertically stack and pack the panels just once; to cover all movements right up to the installation of each panel on the level of the building that it was required”, says Pace Pallet Services Managing Director Michael Mourad. “We worked on prototypes of a collapsible timber crate which was fully hinged for reuse for later projects in Australia for the Bluescope Facades division. We ended up with an A-frame style platform with end protector panels. We supplied it as a flat pack sub-assembly. The final assembly of the crate was done at their factory.”
You will never look at a pallet the same way again. Pace Pallet Services is contributing to an unusual street sculpture at Circular Quay on Sydney Harbour next to the Museum of Contemporary Art. Called Palette of Urban Green, it is part of the Vivid Sydney 2012 festival. The designer is William Chan, named in 2010 as one of Australia’s top 100 ‘Brightest Young Minds’. Chan graduated from the University of Sydney with the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning’s Convocation Medal. He works at HASSELL, Australasia’s top multi-disciplinary design practice. He has been involved in major public architectural and urban design projects most notably the Barangaroo South Redevelopment and the NSW Government’s North West Rail Link. Chan’s professional affiliations include sitting on the national council of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, being a Future Green Leader of the Green Building Council and an International Associate for the humanitarian design think-tank Global Studio. Palette of Urban Green goes on display in May.
